The Recycling Partnership’s Polypropylene Recycling Coalition provides grants to Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) across the United States to improve and increase sortation of polypropylene and support targeted consumer education efforts. Polypropylene, sometimes referred to as No. 5 plastic, is used in an array of food and non-food packaging.
Grants are awarded to qualifying MRFs not currently recycling polypropylene. With these strategic investments, polypropylene will now be accepted curbside in more communities, sent to established end markets, and community members in these areas will be educated as to what is and isn’t accepted in curbside recycling.
